Cyclone Nargis hit the country in 2008, and left more than 134,000 dead. The cyclone affected more than 2.4 million people -- displacing many children. Many orphans in Burma seek refuge in Buddhist monasteries or in orphanages. Unable to trace their families or their homes, the MoeGyo Humanitarian foundation was founded to assist the orphans of Cyclone Nargis.
